and Vishaan Ramnarian in the Young Professional of the Year category and
Vishaal Lutchman in the Professional of the Year category.”

“As a firm, we pride ourselves on
offering premier consultancy services to public and private sector clients
across the built and natural environments – and ensuring we attract and retain
top talent. This accolade recognises our unwavering commitment in both
regards,” added Du Plooy.

Janette Minnaar, the chair of the
adjudication panel explained: “Winners were judged based on a host of
attributes including demonstration of leadership skills, changing of paradigms

number of Lifetime Achievement Awards to deserving recipients who had served
their professions faithfully for many years.”
